On tonight’s showing we have Goldust vs. Ryback, 3MB vs. the Usos, and R-Truth takes on Damien Sandow. The often abused Josh Matthews is on commentary with motor mouth Miz.

A recap of the contract signing between Orton and Cena is shown. There were insults and gratuitous violence. They should know this always happens when there is a contract signing. We all grown, we know Cena is going to win and I personally think that is a crock of shit. Before you Cena marks jump on me just know this CENA isn’t the only superstar on the roster. He isn’t a wrestling god nor should his name be mentioned with Ric Flair’s, Bruno Sammartino, or any other wrestling legend. I get the fact that he does a lot for the Make a Wish foundation but he isn’t the only superstar to do so. So suck on that and shut up. Every time a clip is shown of Michael Cole interviewing Triple H, I want to throw up violently. Lies, lies, lies and even more lies. Trips, while I respect you, I don’t like you at the moment. Stop insulting us fans and treating us as if we are the mud on your boots.

Moment of the Night: Ryback’s match with Goldust was decent. I think that Ryback is showing improvements in the ring again.
Superstar of the Night: This honor goes to Josh Matthews as he proves to us why he is awesome on commentary. Seriously Josh, you have the patience of a saint because I would have punched the Miz in the throat if I had to work with him.
In closing, I thought the show was decent despite the moronic twit Miz on commentary. The best match was between Goldust and Ryback. Please for the love of us wrestling fans put Alex Riley on commentary with Josh Matthews. Miz, while I love you, not everything is about you or your precious movies. Leave the commentary to Matthews and just sit there and look pretty. I think the build towards the TLC PPV has been decent and steady. Have a good night and a better tomorrow.
